    How many times is it normal to PB

    I can go weeks without PB but then if my band is tight due to stress, cold, period I could PB daily for a few days depending what I eat. I've never had to put my fingers down my throat, I just bend over and it tends to come out no problem. I don't think PB daily is a good thing and must be annoying for u?
  8. U and I could never be friends! These are my biggest joys in life and if I knew u in real life I'm positive we would be very bad influences on each other!

    Kat I'm so glad to just read this, sorry ur having a hard time though! I had my last fill months ago, at first it was perfect then about 7-8 weeks later all of a sudden I could eat giant amounts if food so of course I do! 2 weeks later brings me to the last 3 days - I can't keep anything down, nothing but coffee and a tiny bit of water. I don't feel like anything is stuck or my band is too right but something must be wrong coz nothing and u mean nothing is going down!

    Not able to eat much

    What I can and can't eat varies. Sometimes I can not eat chicken yet other times I have no problems. At the moment I can eat chicken Snitzel, roast chicken and chicken thigh, I can eat chicken breast if in a curry or sauce but not a grilled breast - too dry. I can also eat most things if I eat slowly. Steak is just too much work so I don't bother but red meat slow cooked or in a casserole is ok. For me it's just been trial and error and trying all the time rather than ruling foods out, I find my period, stress levels, how cold it is, time of day etc all are factors in what I can and can't eat.
  15. B - 2 skinny lattes MT - honey lemon tea L - tuna, avo and cheese Turkish bread D - 2 teaspoons of minestrone soup still full from lunch! 1 litre water plus 600ml coke zero
